There is still about one and a half months left for the Kedarnath Yatra to start, but the travel administration has geared up for the preparations. However, at present, snow was removed only one meter in width from the walkway. So that along with the horse-mule, the advance team can easily move up to Kedarnath. After this, the workers of DDMA will again start the work of clearing the snow from the walkway. So that the road can be opened in width of three meters. DDMA Executive Engineer Praveen Karnwal said that the team has reached Kedarpuri while removing the snow. Soon the snow will be removed even till the temple.
